Whiteboard App

This app creates a whiteboard that can be used within the OVE framework. The app creates a collaborative canvas that accepts handwriting and text input.

The app’s background is transparent, so it can be used to annotate content displayed using a different OVE App.

The controller UI design of the whiteboard app is based on codoodler.

Launching the App

All OVE applications can be launched using the Launcher UI, the Python Client Library, and the OVE APIs. The API used to launch an application is the same for all applications, but the data that is passed into it is application-specific.

To launch the whiteboard app and display it using the OVE APIs:


curl --header "Content-Type: application/json" --request POST --data '{"app": {"url": "http://OVE_CORE_HOST:PORT/app/whiteboard"}, "space": "OVE_SPACE", "h": 500, "w": 500, "y": 0, "x": 0}' http://OVE_CORE_HOST:PORT/section


curl --header "Content-Type: application/json" --request POST --data "{\"app\": {\"url\": \"http://OVE_CORE_HOST:PORT/app/whiteboard\"}, \"space\": \"OVE_SPACE\", \"h\": 500, \"w\": 500, \"y\": 0, \"x\": 0}" http://OVE_CORE_HOST:PORT/section

Controlling the App

The controller of the app can be loaded by accessing the URL http://OVE_CORE_HOST:PORT/app/whiteboard/control.html?oveSectionId=SECTION_ID.
